In this weekend workshop, we'll look at a variety of yoga postures through the lens of musculo-skeletal anatomy, with an emphasis on raising more awareness about: i) the most common alignment issues that arise within each posture, as well as the potential anatomical causes of such issues; ii) the safety considerations that might exist within each posture, along with an exploration of skillful techniques that can reduce the likelihood of injury; and iii) sequencingstrategies that might best prepare for each posture.

BHAGAVAD GITA
with Edwin Bryant
September 14–15
10am–12pm and 2–6pm

The Bhagavad Gita is perhaps the most representative and certainly the most influential and popular text from the numerous and varied spiritual traditions of Hindu India. Spoken by Lord Krishna to Arjuna who is undergoing a moment of crisis, the text deals with the nature of the self, the world, ultimate reality, the purpose of human existence, and the spiritual paths that can be undertaken to accomplish this purpose. There are primarily four such paths, or yoga systems, featured in the text through which one can unite with the Divine: the path of self-knowledge, jnana yoga; the path of action in the world, karma yoga; the path of meditation, raja yoga; and the path of theistic devotion, bhakti yoga. This workshop will undertake a detailed discussion of these four yoga systems, with contextual references to the background of the text and to some of the major streams of Hindu thought in general. No prior knowledge of Hinduism is necessary for this seminar; the only requirement is to bring an open mind and sincere heart. Students are encouraged to procure any edition of the text, particularly versions that have the Sanskrit text in Roman script, since we will chant some of the Sanskrit verses together.
